Adlington won’t add the 200 freestyle to her Olympic program


Rebecca Adlington has confirmed she will not attempt to add the 200 meter freestyle to her tally of Olympic swims in June – meaning her individual medal bid in London will remain at two.

“I am doing the 200m at the trials but I am not tapering back so to be honest I don’t really think I will make it because there are other girls like Jazmin Carlin who will rest back for it,” said Adlington.

“I am doing it but I doubt I will make it. If I could make the 4x200m freestyle relay team that would be great but I am not looking to qualify individually.
